The Leyda Valley is located around the mouth of the Maipo River. Its Mediterranean climate is under strong Pacific Ocean influence, which results in winters with moderate rainfall and cool summers. The vineyards are planted on gentle hillsides with different orientations, which results in grapes with profiles ranging from citrus to tropical that add to the final complexity.
The grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc are mostly harvested at night. After a cold maceration, they are processed in a pneumatic press to obtain their juice, which is clarified and then fermented with selected
yeasts under controlled temperature conditions. The fermented wines are kept in contact with their lees for a month to enhance complexity and persistence in the mouth.
